The Treasure Trove
Treasure Trove is a collection of small creative writing pieces that were produced by Forgotten Australians with the support of Open Place.
With just a few well-chosen words – brought alive with the soulful power of visual imagery – these six-word stories, three-line poems, unsent letters, single sentences and other creative writing gems open up a treasure trove of stories and experiences. Some of the pieces of writing sparkle with wisdom, some are filled with humour, and still others intrigue with the uniqueness of their vision. Many provide a glimpse of lives unimaginably altered by traumatic childhood experiences. All demonstrate an astonishing depth of resilience and courage.
